Sony Xperia XZ Premium getting Android 8.0 Oreo from today

A few days ago, Sony Xperia XZ Premium owners may have seen news about the promised Android 8.0 Oreo release for their phone.

And that is exactly what has happened.

December isn't far away, but there's now even better news, as Sony has just announced that the Oreo update is actually starting to roll out to the XZ Premium today. Other software features such as app shortcuts will also come to the XZ Premium through the Oreo update.

According to Sony, the buyers in other markets will get the Android Nougat-powered Red Xperia XZ Premium, but they will soon get the Oreo update, which has already started rolling out. The company has said that the software rollouts are a phased process and thus timing and availability will vary by the market where some operator/market exceptions will likely be applicable.

Autofocus burst: Recognises, tracks and captures sequences of moving objects in sharp focus for blur-free action shots. Besides that, they can also have fun with these 3D stickers and upload them to 3D communities such as Sketchfab or bring them to life as avatars with the camera's AR effect options, third-party apps or as a live wallpaper.

Sony also says the Android Oreo update will bring audio improvements to both the front-facing stereo speakers and the Qualcomm aptX HD processing when streaming music wirelessly to Bluetooth headphones or a Bluetooth speaker.

App Shortcuts: The company has revamped the app shortcuts, which allow easy access to actions, menus by long pressing the app icon.

Japanese smartphone maker Sony launched its Xperia XZ Premium smartphone in June this year in India. If it is there then they can start downloading the latest update.
